GOOGLE IS PLANNING on introducing it's own instant messaging service which will allow users to make calls over computers a la Skype, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The service will be called Google Talk and is expected to be out and about by Wednesday. As well as being able to make calls users can trade text messages over the web, similar to programs like AOL Instant Messenger and MSN Messenger.

The release follows Google's plans to release a new tool bar, as our own Nick Farrell reported here. µ
